Hard lump in the middle of chest just a little to the right.

I just have discovered a lump on the right of my chest. I checked myself after I found a lump on my arm which was a benign bone tumor. Now i found this (sadly i cant tell you my age but ill just say that im young) But its pretty big about 3inches down and 2 1/2 inches across its very hard and it feels like my rib.

I am male (as you can see on my profile)

But its kinda scaring me since i have everything on my right side of my body.
I have had horrible lumpy things on my knee i have broke my arm got a bone tumor and now this! Is my right side of my body ill or something?

Im going to the hospital tomorrow about my arm operation while im there ill ask the doctor there about this.

If you had a benign bone tumor in the past, it is definitely possible to find more. It is best to ask your doctor about it. I hope all goes well.

Yes, it should be checked and an xray done as well. How did they determine the bone tumor was benign? Was it removed or going to be removed? You mentioned operation on your arm. I would get your knee checked as well, as to the lumps there. Good luck and let us know how this turns out.

Re: Hard lump in the middle of chest just a little to the right.

I went to the hospital and i was told I dont need an operation yet since where it is it can pretty much sometimes make me unable to move my arm and feel things etc Or usually it would effect just feeling etc.

Well i went for an xray and it turns out it was excess cartilage in my chest so yea im lucky really.

I dont need the bone tumor removed yet though unless it causes lots of pain etc. I have to go back in one year. The doctor/bone specialist person said if it was pointy then it would be removed but because its like a hill (the one i have) the muscle should get used to it being there.

What do you mean by my knee checked? You mean the hammer thingy where then tap just below your knee to see how far it jolts sorta thing? He checked my legs and arms and he didn't find anything. Ah yea theres no lumps there.

Im also really double jointed i can do really weird things.

By the way that bone tumor is called an osteochondroma i think thats how you spell it.

"I have had horrible lumpy things on my knee" in your previous post is why I mentioned having your knee checked. I guess you meant in the past, not current. Glad your chest lump was nothing serious.
